Aki Berg gets over a 1,000,000 when Wayne Gretzky in his prime only got 800,000 how fair is that?

Well I guess something has to be done with the salaries The CBA posted this for earnings by players

Career Gross Earnings # of Players
$10,000,000 or more 203
$20,000,000 or more 86
$30,000,000 or more 49
$40,000,000 or more 34
$50,000,000 or more 23
$60,000,000 or more 7
$70,000,000 or more 3

That's alot of MULA.

Its not really that the players are over paid, its that there is too many players. Shrink the league and pay the guys who deserve to be in the NHL the current salaries.
The NHL of today is really a combination of the IHL,AHL, and NHL of 10 yrs ago in terms of talent.
I have no problem with a Mats sunding making 6-9mil, but when I guy like Robert Reichel can pull in 3m somethings wrong.

when you look at the saleries of the entertainers in other sports like basketball and soccer hockey players are basically on welfare in comparison, 20mil a season an such for English Premier League Player in football (soccer) and then bsketball and what did Bryant just sign for? like 15mil a season???? and then baseball theres alex rodriguez who gets ALOT i cant even think of it right now, but sumwheres round 15 a year im thinkin, and then acters get payed PLENTY, so if i was workin in the entertaining bussinss i'd expect to be makin more then 5 mil a year and suck, now im not sayin its good that they all get paid that much, but i can say that thats the way it is, so it should at least be resonable for hockey players to make more then wat they are right now

thats my 2 cents

Yes I agree. For what hockey players have to do physically they should get paid Much more than Baseball, Basketball, etc. etc.

The problem is that there is no American TV dollars to support this kind of salary in hockey.

The World Poker matches gets more coverage than Hockey in the States. Why do you think ticket prices are so high.

Not just American,I have about 7 sport channels here in Israel (include ESPN),and they show NHL games once in the while,mostly Detroit,NYR,Philly,Chicago,Boston.
Last year from all Canadians teams they supposed to show one single Leafs game vs Philly,and even that one they cancelled and showed some other game.
Playoff time is a little bit better,but still far from all games,
i have seen just 3 Leafs games last playoffs,1 -against Ottawa and 2 against Philly.Thats all.Rest of the games i follow a Mojo on the net and Play by Play on NHL.com

Sergio, you are what being a fan is all about and the reason why I started this board. I wanted to have a place where dedicated fans can talk about the best team in hockey The Toronto Maple Leafs.

I get goose bumps knowing there are dedicated fans like you. :)

Even now with the new salary cap?
In comparison, they are not overpaid at all. Some owners are going to make tons of money because of the new salary cap...our maple leafs being one of them.
They could turn a profit when they had a payroll of 60+million...now its only half that!

Btw, I know it probably doesnt matter anymore, but A rod made 22 million in 2004 when this thread was created...and he made 26 million last year! Thats 2/3's the NHL's salary cap.

Well, if thats your argument, what about comparing what you earn to that of somebody in an undeveloped country. When you see what they have t live on, you are over paid.

Yeah but Leafer are there sports players making millions in those countries?Although nobody deserves to live the way some of the people in those countries are forced to live.In saying that you don't have to leave Canada to here of people who are poor and can't afford to by food or shelter.We have people like that living right here in our country.

What makes you think a hockey player is entitled to make more money for what he does than me,you or anybody else?

The whole system is screwed up.When somebody chasing around a puck or ball is getting paid more than somebody who is working there tails off while trying to make ends meet.

I'm not sure but it seems I remember debating this with you somewhere else. :SH

Well good arguing with you again but I got to go get ready for work so I can eat this week. :)

The Evolution Of The Toronto Maple Leafs Jersey


Toronto Maple Leafs Jersey History

A Proud Franchise And Strong Tradition With Rich History



13 Stanley Cups
The Toronto Maple Leafs have an incredibly rich history and are arguably the most storied franchise in all of hockey. While the tradition runs deep with 13 Stanley Cups, the last of which came in 1967, the organization was considered a dynasty in the 1940's and 1960's only to be followed by five long decades of drought that began with the Ballard years up until the present day. While a resurgence through the Pat Burns teams of the 1990's and Pat Quinn in the early 2000's brought some respectability back to the organization despite still falling short, the patience of every Leafs fan is at an all time high. And yet an undying support with fierce loyalty for the Blue and White also remains. With the arrival of Brendan Shanahan, Lou Lamoriello and Mike Babcock, Leafs Nation remains cautiously optimistic that our beloved Buds have finally turned the corner to put Canada's Team back on the map.
